What to expect

Once we get you scheduled, you will either have a phone consultation or an in person meeting with our certified clinician, Dr. LoRang. He will perform a history and determine if off-label hyperbaric treatment is appropriate for you. In tandem with your goals and your current presentation, he will work with you to develop your protocol.

On subsequent visits, you’ll work directly with our hyperbaric technicians to assist you in and out

of the chamber and to monitor you throughout your treatments.
